Everything we know about the sexual abuse investigations at University of Michigan

The Detroit News

The Detroit News first reported on Feb. 19 that the University of Michigan was investigating claims of sexual abuse by the late Robert E. Anderson, a former director of the University Health Service who also spent years as a top physician for football teams by former coaches Bo Schembechler and Lloyd Carr.

The university was alerted to the allegations against Anderson in July 2018.

Since then, several people have come forward claiming Anderson sexually abused them throughout the years.
